Let's Face It... High School Didn't Prepare Us For Everyday Life!

Algebra 1, Geometry, Algebra 2/Trigonometry, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, all classes assigned to us to take in high school. But tell me this, when will you ever use the Pythagorean theorem in your everyday life? Unless you are headed towards a career in physics, engineering, economics, or medicine, you won't utilize pre-calculus or calculus either.

School’s are missing out on teaching some of the most essentials needed in navigating life. They are missing out and not teaching our high schoolers Valuable Life Skills. 

Fresh out of High School, if not already achieved, most think of getting a job. However, High School doesn’t teach you how to write a resume or how to interview for a job. If you have no job experience, what do you put on your resume? How do you complete an application? What do you say too frequently asked questions like, “Tell me about yourself, What do you do for fun, Why do you want to work here.” 

And then after you create your resume, complete the application, interview for this position, and you start making money, how do you manage your money? What’s the 70/20/10 rule? How do you write a check? How do you balance your account? Oh wait, how about what is the meaning of credit? How do I manage a credit card? Dang It, I maxed out my credit card and my credit score is too bad to get another. What do you do? 

Better yet, what happens when you’re ready to buy that new car? Do you know how to negotiate? How to read the car sticker price, how to research if it’s a good offer? How to read your contract? How to tell if you received a good deal or not? 

And the biggest of them all, what to do when you’re ready to buy a house? 

Valuable Life Skills training with us can teach you all of these things that your high school didn’t. 

Life Skills

Although there is no definitive list of life skills. Certain skills may be more or less relevant to you depending on your life circumstances, your culture, beliefs, age, geographic location, etc.

Our goal at Valuable Life Skills is to teach teens and adults life skills that are needed in everyday life such as money management, resume building and interviewing, career building, balancing a checkbook, the importance of credit, buying a car or house, and much more.
